Tech from Singularity’s Children—A Quantum Arms Race

In the first books of my Singularities Children series, I take today’s technology and jump it ahead by a decade or two—by book Three we are getting into more hard-core SciFi-tech like artificial consciousness and micro-fusion.

Quantum espionage is a theme that is important to the plot, but it will also become increasingly relevant in the real-world over the next decade. Together with a colleague, I have written a short piece on some new developments on the subject at It’s by no means required reading for the series, but if the topic interests you take a look.

Banning N!

Seems like China has been reading the series and has found it a little too close for comfort…

China just banned the letter N from the internet!
